Wrist pain

What is wrist pain?

Irritation to the median and/or ulnar nerves results in pain, tingling, loss of grip strength and difficulty with hand function. Carpal tunnel is perhaps the most common diagnosis associated with wrist pain, and is the result of irritation to the median nerve that is located on the inner aspect of your arm and houses other tendons and muscle. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome and you do not want to risk the side effects associated with steroid injections or surgery, the team at Modern Movement Medicine can help! We offer non-invasive, surgery-free treatments to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome treatment.

What causes wrist pain?

Wrist pain can be directly associated with an acute injury to the wrist, however, in chronic cases it is most commonly associated with irritation to the cervicothoracic junction AND the wrist. In any wrist pain case, our team at Modern Movement Medicine does a thorough analysis of the entire body to ensure an accurate diagnosis and best treatment protocols for each individual. Discovering the root cause associated with your wrist pain is critical in these cases because it is commonly associated with what is called “double crush syndrome” or multiple points of irritation along the course of the nerve(s).
Causes of wrist pain may include:
  • Acute injury
  • Sports injuries
  • Repetitive stress (computer/ desk work)
  • Poor posture
  • Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis
